Options, a provider of colocation services for capital markets, is meeting client demand for ultra-low latency switching capability with the deployment of Arista 7130 series ultra-low latency switches in 20 colocation environments globally. The company selected the switches after a successful deploying of Arista 7150 switches and plans to have 12 fully managed 7130 switches offering Layer 1 exchange access on its colocation platform by the end of 2019.

The Arista 7130 series reduces the cut through latency from 380 nanoseconds experienced with the Arista 7150 series, to between 5 nanoseconds and 45 nanoseconds depending on operating mode. Options will use the switches to provide less than 5 nanoseconds latency between client server interfaces and various stock exchange multicast feeds. When using the devices for unicast tasks such as order entry, refresh, and retransmission, Options will reduce latency to less than 45 nanoseconds.

Danny Moore, Options president and co-CEO, says: “Partnering with great technology firms like Arista is key to delivering a world class finance network for trading and colocation. The Arista 7130 has transformed our ability to deliver single digit, nanosecond market data and execution connectivity in both shared and dedicated client architectures.”
